In winter there are not many things that I like better than to curl up in bed with a good book – or a pile of magazines -as we don’t have a heater in our apartment (no, I’m not kidding, we just don’t need them here usually) its one of the only places to get warm at this time of year. This feeling of wanting to hibernate has got me thinking of my dream bed. I definitely love an upholstered headboard, and I’m a bit of a fan of bedheads that look soft, comfy and a little like a sofa. I guess its the sense of being enveloped by something. So here are a few of my picks…
Antique french bedhead in the apartment of Zhang Toi – upholstered in a Loro Piana cashmere
Two beds by Frank Roop, like this second one, it looks a bit like a hotel room set up, but it still has a warmth about it.
Two sweet as can be beds, from Domino magazine
Now we’re talking… I LOVE this bedhead. Diamond buttoning, its nice and high (good for sitting up and reading), and the fabric looks nice and soft too. Another from my style files…can’t remember the source for this one…and I know its been blogged about a few times already…
Another two old images from my style files, although I think the 2nd one is from Domino magazine.
my favourite is the room by jay jeffers. it’s perfection!

These pictures are stunning! I don’t think there is one bed (or headboard) I don’t like. Fab!

WOW Suzy, what a fantastic post! Love the Steven Sclaroff room.
Such fabulous options! But I’m with you- I like a high headboard. Very helpful when you’re sitting in bed and reading. Can’t wait for part 2!
